I flew into
After that, I drove down to a beach front parking area and decided to look over some maps to figure out where I wanted to go. I knew I wanted to get to Playa del Carmen at some point and a very funny story ended up making me go that evening. While the story is pretty funny, you will have to know me MUCH better to hear it. Anyway, suffice it to say that I ended up driving down the freeway at night and having my first encounter with topes. For those of you who don’t know what they are…topes are like speed bumps. But on the freaking freeway!!! One encounter with them and you never miss a topes 100m sign again. : )
